Even on PDFs scanned at 600dpi, OCR ignores inter-word spaces.

I'm creating PDFs from clear, legible printed documents scanned at 600 dpi, then using OCR on the PDPa. The recognized text, when copied and pasted into fresh documents, appears as a solid block of characters with no spaces between words. What's wrong? I'm using an iMac, OS 10.7.3 and a Samsung SCX-4521F printer/scanner/copier.

    When you recognize the text in the PDF, what setting are you using for the PDF Output Style?
